A Stitch In Time..

Happy March!!!

Since Sunday we have gotten between 16 and 17 inches of snow.

My 5-mile drive into work this morning was beyond slick but I made it and starting Saturday night we are in for 8 to 14inches more!
Oh, March you can be so fickle. 

On Sunday I roasted a chicken with potatoes, carrots, and onions.
and to top it off I made popovers. tonight, we had the last of it in a homemade chicken noodle soup so good if I do say so myself. 

Ok since I have two large rugs to bind, I felt I could not start anything else until these were bound. And yes, I love big rugs, but I pay for it with lots of binding. 

Ok onto the stitching challenge put on by my roommate, partner in crime and Cousin Donna. Visit Here to learn about the other stitchers who did the challenge too and see what they came up with.

The four of us all had the same scraps of fabric.

I tried to do a few stitches I knew and of course I was thinking spring.

I hooked a little butterfly did not come out very well but...

my bee is very sweet... get it my grand is called Sweet B (ugg sorry)
 I am thinking of doing a larger stitching project instead of hooking another rug right away. Stay tuned.
Have a wonderful weekend and if the storms are headed your way stay safe and cozy.

Wow, you are getting a lot of snow late in the season. We got 17 inches here a little over a week ago. I am glad you got to work safely. Driving on snowy and slick roads is no fun at all. We have more snow in the forecast for tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday. I have no idea how much we will end up with. You are always working on fun and interesting projects. I hope you have a good weekend. Stay safe and warm!

I'm sorry you are being swamped with so much snow! I know it can be the way it is in your area but I think this season has been over top for you! We on the other hand are snowless and it's going to pass us by as we're expecting rain tomorrow. Very weird for northern Ohio! Your food sounds so yummy! Love the look of those popovers! Your stitching is very cute and I think it's the best that I saw from the other blog. But I might be just a little prejudice! Have a good weekend and stay safe and warm. I'm sure your woodstove is humming along!

Oh Wow I can not believe all the snow you have with much more to come-so glad we didn't have much snow here at all this winter.
I love your challenge with friends-and your butterfly turned out nice. Food sounds delicious Hoping you have the weekend off and get home from work tonight with no problems hugs Kathy

Thankfully your job is only a 5 mile drive. I love also love homemade soup usually I make my chicken soup with rice instead of noodles. But this last recipe called for pearl couscous which is a pasta so that was a nice change.

Oh my love it! All the combinations of stitches and hooks!

YOU are getting a lot of snow! Five miles and you drove on slickness - here in GA everything would be shut down.
I love all your craft work - you are very talented.

You really got a lot of snow and so did we. It snowed another 6 inches during the night but it's sunny at least this afternoon. Glad you made it to work safely.

I'm impressed with your applique fabric challenge. It speaks of spring.
The popovers are tempting.

What a fun stitching project.
That is a LOT of snow. Making up for all the snow you did not get earlier in the season. The bright spot is that spring snows don't stick around for too long! Thankfully our temp is above freezing because we are once again getting lots of rain...but you don't have to shovel rain ;-)

Donna said...

Thanks so much for giving me a mention. Getting ready to hunker down for the upcoming snow ...10+°!!

Those popovers look fantastic! Glad you made there and back ok. Y'all got a lot of winter there.
Storm starts tonight here.

Your project is adorable, very creative

Ypuzers on the snow. We might get 10 with this storm that started this afternoon. I hope not. Love your creative fabric piece. I did get the B reference. Too cute! Janice

Jeanie said...

Those popovers look great. I haven't had one in ages and never made them. Glorious! And your new rugs are wonderful. Love your opening painting and snow... we got about four inches last night. I'm so over it.

You have a lot more snow than here in Nashua, NH, and it is lightly snowing now but the accumulation is only a few inches. We spent part of last eek in N. Conway, NH, and had a beautiful snowstorm on Thursday morning. We went snowshoeing for the first time in several years and happily it was like riding a bicycle and we had not forgotten how to do it. Popovers are delicious and nothing better than chicken soup on a winter's day.

You did get a lot of snow, we got some and then gone the next day. I guess the ski slopes are happy.
Looks like you are making some fun projects and being able to craft with Miss B is such a blessing. I have tried some crafts with the boys, but they get frustrated easily, so maybe I can teach Nick how to rug hook.
